How to create a Samhain Halloween Ritual

Carrie JordanShamanism

Halloween, or Samhain as we call it for cross-quarter holidays, is a sacred day where we honor our ancestors. We honor their wisdom, we honor our oldest ancestors, the elements (air, fire, water, earth) because we are made of them. We are made of the DNA of our ancestors and they have passed their traumas, their lessons, and their stories to us. They watch over us and walk with us supporting us.

Today is also the new moon in scorpio, a perfect time for setting intentions and letting go of what no longer serves us. We can set personal intentions and we can set intentions for peaceful co-creation together, as we co-create this world.

Today and every day I pray for Standing Rock and for a peaceful solution where the Sioux people may have their sacred land restored to them and the sacred water source of the river they are protecting. We can pray for the Water Protectors are to #DanceForStandingRock: while you dance, say the mantra, “I dance for standing rock.”

When we pray together, we create a force, a vortex, and we amplify the prayers.

We know that Spirit is listening because the buffalo herd showed up at Standing Rock a few days ago.

So, there is a lot to pray for today, October 30! Watch the video for more :)
